What it is about the D7000 body that is such an issue? Having gone from a D300 to a D600 (which has plenty of D7000 DNA) about the only thing I miss is the 100% zoom button. I certainly do not miss the size or weight which was simply absurd in a camera with an APS-C sized sensor.
One issue you do not often see in the D7000 or D600 forum is Nikonians lamenting the breaking of the camera body. A lament you often see is that D200 or D300 is still built like a tank, but has little resale value, as it is technically out of date, compared even to the D3200.
Buffer size and AF points aside, the D700 is still pretty much state of the art, and I would wager that whatever comes along at the top of the DX tree early next year will out-perform both the D7000 and D300 in every respect, although the full sized magnesium body may not be seen again.
